Moist-n-tasty Baked Burger Patties

Do you keep a recipe box? It may be an old-fashioned way of collecting recipes, but I love digging through old recipe boxes, don’t you? To me, searching through an old box of collected recipes is like opening Christmas presents – exciting! So last year, when I flew back home to visit grandma, I made it a point to raid some of my aunts’ recipe boxes to collect some tasty recipes. And in the process, I found my mom’s recipe box! I haven’t seen my mom’s recipe box in over 10 years and it was such a sentimental find for me. I’m slowly going through the box and this moist-n-tasty baked burger caught my eye. This recipe has a small hint of the island teri-burger flavor that mixes great with your favorite burger toppings. What I love about this recipe is that it’s a simple family recipe. There isn’t any complicated fluff and uses everyday ingredients, so let’s get to it!

Moist-n-Tasty Baked Burger Patties

cubed bread

The moisture in this patty comes from milk soaked bread. It’s a great way to use up the ends or old bread. Just cut up 6 slices into crouton-sized cubes and soak with milk. 

bread and eggs

Next, season eggs and fold into the bread mixture. The bread will begin to breakdown and that’s ok. Fold in the remaining ingredients* to the mix, except the ground beef. The mix will be extremely wet. Once all the ingredients are well blended, add the wet mix to the ground beef and mix well. 

*Since my oldest son doesn’t care for the consistency of onions, I grated half of the onions and minced the remaining half to try to hide the texture.

Line a large baking sheet (I used one large sheet and a small sheet) with foil and spray with cooking spray. Take a small baseball sized handful of the buger mixture, place it on the baking sheet, and shape into a large 5-6 inch patty. The mix should make around 10 patties. Bake for 15 minutes on oneside, flip, and bake another 5 minutes or until done. If adding cheese (I use provolone), add during the last 2-3 minutes of baking to melt. If you prefer thicker burgers, adjust the cook time.

Moist-n-Tasty Baked Burger Patties

Yield: 10
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes

Baked burger patties using regular pantry ingredients.


  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 6 Slices cubed old bread (ends are good too)
  • 1 Cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 Medium onion (1/2 grated and 1/2 minced)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2/3 cups Aloha soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 Cloves minced garlic (If using bottle garlic, use 2 heaping teaspoons)
  • 2 Teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray/oil. Set aside.
  2. Cube bread into 1" squares and add milk. Stir until the bread absorbs the milk. Scramble eggs and fold into the milk/bread mixture. Add all the remaining ingredients, except for the hamburger, and fold into the mix until well combined. The bread will break apart a little, but his is fine. Add this mixture into the ground beef.
  3. Mix will be extremely 'wet'. Take a small baseball sized handful of the meat mix and place it on the lined foil pan. Shape into a large flat 5" -6" hamburger shape. Bake for 15 minutes, flip and bake for 5 more minutes.


  • Add your favorite burger toppings - lettuce, cheese, onions, pickles, tomatoes, and more.
  • If using only 1 pound of ground beef, reduce the ingredients in half.

  1. It’s awesome that you found your mom’s recipe box, and these sound tasty. I hate dry burgers, so I’ll have to give these a try!

  2. I want to try your recipe Erlene. I’ve never tried soaked bread but it does sound like a moist burger! How awesome that you found your Mom’s recipes. I know you are having fun with those. Homemade burgers are the best!

  3. Hi, Erlene!! It’s almost dinner time here and my mouth is watering right now. The tip about using old bread is great, we used to keep it to feed chickens at a friend’s farm but we can do both.

    Thanks so much for sharing it with us at #sweetinspiration, have a wonderful week!
